The split(String regex, int limit) method is same as split(String, regex) method but the only difference here is that you can limit the number of elements in the resultant Array.

Method Definition: String[] split(String regex, int limit)

Return Type: It returns a String array where, the number of elements in the Array are specified and the last element of the array is the part that is left in the stated string.

Example: 1#




// Scala program of split()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Applying split method
        val result = "PfsoQmsoRcsoGfGkso".split(".so", 3)
          
        for ( m1 <-result ) 
        {
            // Displays output
            println(m1)
        }
          
    }
Output:



P
Q
RcsoGfGkso

So, here we have three elements in the resultant Array and the last element contains the remaining part of the string which is left after splitting the second element of an Array.
Example: 2#




// Scala program of split()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Applying split method
        val result = "NidhifsoSinghmsoAcso".split(".so", 2)
      
        for ( m1 <-result ) 
        {
            // Displays output
            println(m1)
        }
  
    }
Output:
Nidhi
SinghmsoAcso
